The first edition of the Wolds End Challenge Cycle Sportive offers a landscape of real contrasts, wide open field tops with views for miles and hidden quiet villages.
Starting off from Burton Fleming, the long and medium routes head west both on the same challenging route via Foxholes, down the steep decent of Sherburn Brow, Butterwick, Langtoft, Sledmere, Duggleby, Weaverthorpe and retracing back to Sherburn Brow for the steepest climb of the day, and back to Burton Fleming where the medium route finishes.
The long route then takes on the 15 miles short route.
The short route is a satisfying challenge in itself, both in terms of climbing and the experience of cycling along Woldgate, as depicted by David Hockney in his paintings.
The route leaves Burton Fleming going north to Kilham, east along Woldgate, north to Boynton and Grindale, before returning west back to Burton Fleming.
Long Route - 62 miles 4000ft climbing
Medium Route - 47 miles 3000ft climbing
Short Route - 15 miles 1000ft climbing
